The piano salon came off well. There were about a dozen us, and also three "proud parents" (one of the students was a 10yo boy with a knack for improvisation, and another who was a 16yo girl). I played my Schumann piece decently well. My ears are getting better faster than my fingers, so the better I get, the more aware I become of "the little things that made the big difference", and the more critical I get of my own performance.

Went up to jezel's and used my cargo space to help her haul a couple of cubic yards of "stuff" to the local thrift.

Early in the evening, I swallowed a melatonin and forced myself to sleep, to try to roll my schedule up, and break the "wake up at ten in the morning" I've been doing last week. But I woke up at midnight, and couldn't get back to the land of Nod until four. So, again, this Monday morning, I got up at, you guessed it. Ten.

Sleep habits

Somehow I have stopped my habit of awakening at 3 or 3:30 a.m. but 5 is still too early to start the day. I went back to bed this morning at 5:15 after letting Edward out. He no longer sleeps in my bedroom. I sleep better without his roaming. He was happy to nod off on my bed this morning though. Melatonin has a delayed effect on me--like many hours after I consume it, I want to sleep, so I have to take it in the afternoon. I also don't allow any naps. That way I am ready for sleep after the news. Also my new blood pressure medicine has stopped the cough I have had for almost a year. That pleases me immensely too. The price at $57 for a month's supply doesn't please me but it's only money I guess.

Re: Sleep habits

By the way, I wish I could have heard you play the piano. You performed marvelously as a young boy. I was a proud parent.
